TEETH WHITENING IN CERRITOS, CA

Would you like spectacular white teeth? If you would like to brighten your smile, whether for a special event such as a wedding or just to boost confidence, Dentist of Cerritos can help. We offer affordable professional teeth whitening that is safer and more effective than over-the-counter methods.

WHAT IS TEETH WHITENING?

Teeth whitening can refer to any method that makes your teeth white. Professional teeth whitening safely “bleaches” your teeth to remove discolorations and stains through the supervision of a qualified dentist. (Note: you never want to use real bleach on your teeth, which is toxic!) At Dentist of Cerritos, we offer a number of teeth whitening options, including Zoom and take-home trays.

WHAT IS ZOOM TEETH WHITENING?

Zoom teeth whitening is a procedure that is done in our dentist office in Cerritos. We combine the use of a special gel along with a therapeutic blue light. Zoom whitening can deliver amazing results, sometimes whitening teeth up to 8 shades in one session!

WHAT IS TRADITIONAL TEETH WHITENING?

Traditional teeth whitening uses trays filled with a whitening agent that you use at home. We can also apply a special teeth whitening solution in our dental office in Cerritos. These clinically formulated solutions are far safer and more effective than store-bought solutions.

IS TEETH WHITENING PAINFUL?

Teeth whitening is typically not painful whatsoever. However, it might increase tooth sensitivity for patients who already have sensitive teeth. For this reason alone, it is best to work with our professional dentist in Cerritos, as our clinical teeth whitening formulations won’t damage the teeth and cause sensitivity like some over-the-counter solutions can. If anything, the Zoom procedure can be a little uncomfortable, but it is over quickly.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO WHITEN TEETH?

At-home teeth whitening can take a few weeks, while Zoom can work wonders in one 45-minute session. However, some patients may see better results for at-home tooth whitening for certain types of stains.

IS PROFESSIONAL TEETH WHITENING BETTER THAN OVER-THE-COUNTER PRODUCTS?

While over-the-counter teeth whitening products may get some results, many of them can actually damage tooth enamel. Tooth enamel cannot be regrown, so it’s not a risk worth taking. Our professional teeth whitening is much safer, and in the long run, more economical than potentially damaging over-the-counter tooth whitening products.

WHAT ARE CONTRAINDICATIONS FOR TEETH WHITENING?

Before you get your teeth whitened, you’ll need your teeth and gums to be healthy and stable. Thus, teeth whitening is contraindicated if you currently have an untreated cavity, cracked tooth, gum infection, or other dental condition. Of course, we will work with you to fix these problems and then you can move forward with teeth whitening. Also, talk to us if you have tetracycline antibiotic stains, which require special treatment.

HOW CAN I KEEP MY TEETH WHITER?

Our teeth naturally darken as they age due to use and contact with certain types of foods and drinks. Additionally, as our tooth enamel naturally wears away, the yellower dentin on the inside of the tooth shows up more. Acidic foods and drinks like cola soft drinks will break down your enamel more quickly and make your teeth more yellow. You should also avoid cigarettes, coffee, wine, and dark berries, at least in excess, to keep your teeth whiter.
